Shadow Puppet Theater

Programs for Young Artists:

Shadow Puppet Theater
with instructor Chelsea Smith

Sunday, April 24 from 1 - 4 pm
Free and open to all ages


Drawing on cultural histories from China and Bali, students will make their own shadow puppets from construction paper and wood. Kids and adults can go as elaborate or simple with their puppet cut-outs as they like. A small tissue-paper stage will act as a theater for the group to act out a collective play, or individual stories. Art instructor Chelsea Smith received her BFA in Ceramics at University of the Arts London and has worked at art institutions in England, Sweden and the U.S. She is currently a studio assistant at Oakland’s Creativity Explored and teaches at Golden Gate Children's Art and NIAD Arts Center.
